NYC police arrested a 20-year-old student at the Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology for trying to build and detonate pressure cooker bombs on behalf of the Islamic State.
Munther Omar Saleh openly supported the militant group on Twitter. He reportedly wrote on social media that he feared al-Qaeda "could be getting too moderate".
Saleh was pulled over by police on a highway in Queens on June 7. They arrested him after he tried to attack them. "Saleh emailed himself information from the Internet regarding the construction of a pressure cooker bomb," investigators say.
